The Florida Bibliophile Society members are finishing up their summer break and looking forward to the new meeting schedule starting in September. Vice President Maureen Mulvihill has arranged for some exciting speakers for our September and October meetings.

The meeting will start at 1:30 p.m. at the Seminole Community Library, 9200 113th St. North, Seminole.
For the Oct. 20 meeting, FBS member Hal Youmans, of Riverview and a nationally renowned scholar on the War of 1812, will talk on methodological errors in historical research of the War of 1812. The meeting will begin at 1:30 p.m. at the MacDonald-Kelce Library, University of Tampa, 401 W. Kennedy Blvd., Tampa.The Nov. 17 meeting moves back to the Seminole Community Library for our annual Book Sale and Members’ Show and Tell. Of course December is reserved for the Society’s annual Holiday Potluck, where the members get to sample some wonderful dishes and sit to discuss their latest “find.” These events are a great start for our coming event year. The Society began its summer break with a May banquet with a silent auction, which has become very popular. The Florida Bibliophile Society meets every third Sunday of the month, from September through May, and remember everyone is welcome.
